Grand canyon to Palm Spring, where is ideal night stop?

Hi, on 10Nov, with my family of 4 persons (2 kids at 10& 11) will be leaving Grand Canyon about 1-2pm heading to Palm Spring but since it will take close to 7hrs to Palm Spring, we are planning to stop at Kingman for a night before sunset. Using Kingman route to Palm Springs is because it's shorter that via Phoenix.

1. Is Kingman a good stop or somewhere nearby, just plan to drive for about 3hrs on that day.

2. is the road to kingman winding? Want to aviod any winding with steep dropoff with no shoulder road.

3. what can we do to spend a good evening in Kingman?

Many thanks.

If you are in an RV, we found Blake Ranch RV Park in Kingman to be the best of our 5-week cross country trip. Private individual shower rooms, pet park, clean, beautiful gravel--which we came to appreciate as we came West. It is located just off I-40 and a great rate of $25.00 in October 2011.

With only two nights you're not going to be able to include all of those stops. I suggest a night at Sedona and then a night at GCNP. You can then complete the loop back to Palm Springs via LH and Laughlin, but you'll need another day if you intend to stop and see either of those place. Add two days to experience them both.

This is a very old post. Suggest to open a new topic (ask a question) Are you returning to PS after GC?
